Hi everyone... was diagnosed with HSV-1 (oral) today, on the very same day I had a first date with a great woman. As the dialogue flowed naturally and we seemed to have good chemistry, I told her. Not sure if it affected the outcome of what comes next one way or the other, and I know she had a right to know... but my spirit just feels crushed. Like a switch went off in her brain, and that I became undesirable to her. I know it’s just my mind telling me that. I have no proof. But I don’t think I can repeatedly go through the scenario of connecting with someone, then telling them, and then feeling like I was rejected. I’ll need to go on herpes dating websites because I don’t ever want to feel again the way I feel right now... like I’m “less than”...

I totally understand how you feel and I’ve been dealing with it for 5+ years ! Although it is hard to express because it does make you feel less than.. there are ppl out there for us who will go through the struggle right by our sides ! We are still PEOPLE !

Thanks to everyone that has responded so far. Forgot to mention that I am waiting on results of HSV-2 testing, which I should have tomorrow. Preparing for the worst but hoping for the best.

Results from HSV2 also positive. HIV testing tomorrow. Taking it in stride but could definitely use all the positive vibes you want to send my way.
